147 pm pst Fri jan 19 2018

Synopsis Cool conditions and scattered showers will continue
through late tonight. Drier weather returns on Saturday. A band
of rain, possibly heavy at times, moves into the north bay Sunday
evening spreading southeastward Sunday night into Monday morning.

Rain returns during the middle of next week with showery weather
lingering into late next week.

Discussion As of 1:45 pm pst Friday... Near term conditions
have not changed much from this morning. Cool and unstable airmass
still resides over the bay area. As a result, instability showers
continue across the region. Have not see any recent lightning,
but given the convective nature and colder airmass these showers
may be heavy at times and contain small hail. A few spotters have
confirmed small hail close to pea size hail. Current temps of some
of the higher peaks are hovering right around 32 degrees.

Therefore, any passing shower could drop some snow on the highest
peaks. Latest hrrr and local WRF models keep instability showers
through late tonight and current forecast will reflect this.

Brief ridging develops over the bay area on Saturday with no
precip expected. Despite drier conditions temperatures will still
remain cool with highs mostly in the 50s and higher peaks in the
40s... About 5 degrees below normal.

The ridging quickly diminishes on Sunday as the next system takes
aim at the bay area. Latest model timing brings a weakening
atmospheric river into the north bay between 12-18z and then
gradually spreading southward through the day. There could be a
brief period during Sunday afternoon evening where moderate to
heavy rain may develop over the north bay. Of greatest concern
would be intense rain in short period of time impacting the burn
scars. As of now it doesn't appear to be a major concern, but
something to monitor as Sunday gets closer. Rain chances will
continue well into Monday with scattered showers remaining. Storm
total rainfall from Sunday into Monday will be greatest over the
north bay 0.75-1.25"... Sf santa cruz mts 0.25-0.75"... Less than
0.5" elsewhere.

A brief respite is possible late Monday into early Tuesday, but
another system will bring additional rain to the region. It
appears the storm door remains open with a decent cold front and
more rain moving through Wednesday into Thursday. Cool and chilly
weather will continue through Friday.

Aviation As of 9:42 am pst Friday... For 18z tafs.VFR
conditions to prevail for most sites aside from patchy morning fog
at ksts and in the north bay. Scattered showers will continue to
stream over the area through late this afternoon. Passing showers
may briefly lower CIGS and reduce visibilities to MVFR ifr. Main
concern today will be the chances for some scattered thunderstorms
along the coast. This would mainly affect sites closer to the
pacific. Thus far the nearest lightning strike has been over 150
miles offshore, but the potential for convection through this
afternoon still exists. Confidence is low enough to keep TS out of
the tafs. Onshore winds this afternoon 10-15 kt.

Vicinity of ksfo...VFR conditions will prevail across area
terminals as showers continue to move across the region. Passing
showers may briefly reduce conditions to MVFR. Chance of
scattered thunderstorms into this afternoon. So far, no lightning
strikes have been reported anywhere near the coast. Radar will be
closely monitored. Onshore winds this afternoon 10-15 kt.

Sfo bridge approach... Similar to ksfo.

Monterey bay terminals...VFR CIGS and vsbys will prevail with
passing scattered showers. Brief vis and cig reductions possible
with a heavier shower. Slight chance of thunderstorms through
this afternoon along the coast and over the waters, main concern
would be for kmry. No lightning has been observed near the airport
thus far, but radar will be closely monitored. Light winds.

Marine As of 09:27 am pst Friday... Large west to northwest
swell will continue to impact the coastal waters through today,
causing large breaking waves and high surf along the central
coast. Scattered showers with possible thunderstorms will continue
through the day. Slight increase in northwest winds tonight. Winds
will increase and turn southerly on Sunday morning ahead of the
next system. Swells will gradually decrease over the weekend.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
